Resolution response: May 8, 2023

I got my first copy, it was postal office mistake delivering my parcel to a different home address.

I paid 1 yr subscription online and received subscription number. Their customer care number is dead, email will receive only auto-response. No way to claim the money or monthly copies. I had a big expectation for my kids on this summer but everything went on dream. Better to buy in local outlets.

I subscribed to Reader's Digest in January and they didn't send me the copy in time and had to follow up with them multiple times before they finally managed to deliver. When I finally received the copy, I found out that it was damaged badly that it was unreadable. The entire memory of waiting for the next edition of Reader's Digest and enjoying it is ruined. I have dropped them email to cancel my subscription. I hope I find some better service.

    I have subscribed Reader's Digest magazine for 2 Years. They never sent me the magazine in time. Even now many issues are pending. Sent mail more than 16 times. Don't subscribe this. Better to subscribe some other. Very cheap service.

    Conned us.. Paid 999 through online portal and received first copy after two months and numerous e mails.. And that's it.. That's that.. No monthly copy received since August and the customer service lays in slumber. You guys literally maligned my memories with Reader's Digest. Never buying one again.

    I enjoy reading Jason Buhrmester's columns. He is new to Reader's Digest. I look forward to reading his columns in the future. I enjoyed the picture of him and his two sons too. I hope they can look back on it too as they get older! Welcome to R.D. Hope to be hearing from you a long time!

    I purchased a gift subscription to Reader’s Digest Canada for a family member, and the family member received the issues up until I was sent a renewal email. I clicked the renewal email and input all of my payment information, but the issues stopped appearing even though I’d renewed the subscription. I phoned customer service, and their representative apologized for the error on their end and let me know that I would get an additional month added to the subscription, but that they couldn’t send me the old, missing issues. We waited. The new issues didn’t appear.

    I emailed customer service and I was told by customer service that the gift subscription wouldn’t resume for another four months! I said that it made no sense that there would be a four-month gap between the original subscription and the “renewal” of the subscription, and the representative responded that Reader’s Digest couldn’t send me any back issues, couldn’t restart the subscription any earlier, and basically I should just suck it up. I am really really REALLY not impressed with their customer service. They don’t seem to know what they’re doing when it comes to subscription renewals or dealing with customers either online or on the phone, and one hand is clearly not talking to the other in terms of their customer service and subscription departments. It’s too bad because the family member really loves the magazine - too bad they never receive any issues. I am done with this magazine.

    After taking money for a year, they are not going to deliver any magazine. They are big-time cheats. I subscribed for this magazine and paid the full amount. Despite number of reminders they have not send even a single copy.

    I read at least 100 jokes and with all these jokes. They contained jokes that not even my brother would laugh at. These jokes... were jokes themselves. For the people who created these jokes. Y'all need some kinda training. Even walking into a bar jokes were terrible. Usually, they give a good punchline but they gave depression and sorrow for the people that were brave enough to upload these online.

    Innocent customers are warned not to fall in trap of yearly subscription of RD magazine by getting lured of emails for lucky draws and petty gifts. RD is a cheat group in such cases. They only have mission to mint money from people like us and then they will rarely respond to emails, or on customer care numbers, nor will they deliver the magazines or gift. Persons working there named Nidhi/Sunil/Priyaranjan, and others who if by chance take your call on customer care, are just trained robots and they will be of no use. Beware of subscribing to such road side magazine. People operating it in India are crooks and nothing else.

    My subscription id is **. I have booked the subscription for Reader's Digest and I have not received even single copy yet. I tried calling the customer care number but it is useless. Queries are not handled properly.
